I never would have guessed that there are people who ONLY climb live volcanoes, or who only climb a mountain if it's over 4,267.2m. There are people who love the mountains but have never, ever put on a pair of crampons, and those that basically live in their crampons. Thanks to a photo and an old trip report posted on SP, I got off my ass and went up into the Crestones a couple of weeks ago and had the area truly, entirely, and completely to myself for 4 days.

So what if SP doesn't have the latest beta on some obscure 3-move V7? So what if SP isn't the place to re-live the glory days of wool (or spandex). SP's pretty cool!


Well said. I think that each site has its place, but I'm most at home here (I've also been on this site forever...). BTW, mountainproject used to be climbingboulder.com

Best reference to The Taco Stand. :D Dingus put it best regarding ST. Gems and golden nuggets throughout. I tried tracking down one thread for a few weeks, with Dingus and Brutus discussing the finer points in life (HA!). When I finally found it, I laughed till I cried!! Doods brought me to find more humor in life's tragedies and pitfalls rather than stress away the minutes.

Lest I forget the late, great OUCH and his brilliant photoshop works brought to life in the form of gif format!

Not just climbingboulder.com... Sites like climbingmoab.com and climbingjtree.com (and there were others) were also all merged into Mountain Project.
